Applications call for Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Contest. Applicants must submit one humor poem which should be their own original work. Candidates may submit the same poem simultaneously to this contest and to others, and you may submit a poem that has been published or won prizes elsewhere. (However, please do not submit a poem that has previously received recognition at Winning Writers.)


Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Contest has the following prizes

  • First Prize: $2,000 plus a two-year gift certificate from our co-sponsor, Duotrope (a $100 value)
  • Second Prize: $500
  • Honorable Mentions: 10 awards of $100 each
  • Top 12 entries published online

Length Limit

A poem should not exceed 250 lines in length. Exclude the title and blank lines from your count.


Due to US government restrictions, candidates from the following countries are unable to participate: Syria, Iran, North Korea, or Crimea. Authors from all other countries are eligible. The poem you submit should be in English. If you have written a work in another language, you may submit an English translation (made by you). Inspired gibberish is also accepted.


Entries are judged anonymously. Applicants should omit their name and all identifying information from the entry. Also, should not include a cover letter. In addition to that, participants should omit any publishing credits from the entry.
